Panama-Pacific International Exposition - WOW (Industrial Workers of the World) Parade / marching units of women / fancy marching / head of organization on horse / CU of large group / parade.
NOTE: This is an extremely early women's labor union march! It can also pass easily for
"Women's Suffrage" as well, with their draped sashes and uniformly white dresses. Curiously, and to great effect, they march in drill formations as well as the standard march down a city street.

...and here comes the car with the women.
Film that has a bunch of segments. The first is a train wreck of some sort, authorities have fenced it off, and it has lots of crowds coming in to check it out. After that, we have a soldier check and walk, nothing too much, then after that, a bizarre spot with 2 still pictures of nothing much at all, not too sure what that was about. Then, yes, after that, is the marching women, march march they do, and sometimes in formations! Two things to notice here, a) they don't seem to have any police helping with traffic, because cars squeeze by whenever they get a chance and b) after the women march by, there is a car with three ladies who seem to be part of the group, but for whatever reason, are not marching. The BEST part, is when the marching women stand and pose for the camera, the car AGAIN, just goes into the shot, pauses, then drives off. Amazing!
